There are many challenges involved in moving homes, from hiring the right professionals to estimating costs, there is a lot to consider. In this blog post, we’ll be breaking down some prices and services we offer, so you can get the right idea of what a move with HSS Moving can cost. Please note that this is not a definitive quote but a rough estimate derived from scenarios. Prices vary for every move.
How Much Will It Cost?
Suppose you want to move from Aurora into a beautiful three-bedroom, 2000-square-foot home in Vaughan. First and foremost, your first question might be, what’s the truck fee for a move of that size? Our truck fees are a flat rate of $180 for the day. That includes gas, mileage, insurance and equipment like dollies and shrink wrap.
Regarding labour costs, prices can vary since there’s no such thing as a one size fits all moving solution. When you contact us, we can determine how many movers you will need for your specific move. For two movers, our labour rate is $109 per hour. For three movers, our labour rate is $169 per hour. Usually, for a three-bedroom home of this size, you would need three movers. It’s important to note that our minimum hourly charge for movers is three hours.
Are There Any Additional Fees?
Many other extenuating factors can affect the price of your desired move. Say you also need your home appliances or a piano moved? Would you like to add packing services? Let’s break down how the additional services we offer can affect the price of your move.
When it comes to moving appliances, the total will depend on how many appliances you would need to move. Per appliance, we charge a $45 flat rate. That includes washers, dryers, fridges and even gym equipment, such as ellipticals and treadmills. Piano costs can vary between $250-$500 depending on the type of piano you want to transport into your new home.
When it comes to packing services, we offer those as well! If you require some help packing up your hypothetical Aurora home and moving it into your new home in Vaughan, our diligent home packers will show up a day or two before moving in to pack your belongings for you. In addition to the labour and truck charges, as mentioned in the previous section, an additional $180 transportation fee is charged.
How Long Will My Move Take?
There’s no clear indication of how long a move can take. Many factors contribute to the time it takes to move, but for purposes of this example, we can estimate the time it can take based on our previous experience.
To put our estimates into perspective, we’ve broken them down by how many bedrooms your new home has:
- One Bedroom: 3-5 Hours
- Two Bedrooms: 4-6 Hours
- Three Bedrooms: 6-8 Hours
- Four+ Bedrooms: 8-10 Hours
It’s important to note that you should also equate travel time to and from your new place. In this scenario, the travel time to Vaughan from Aurora is roughly 26 minutes in moderate traffic. Time can be longer depending on if you’re moving locally or interprovincially.
